These 3 documents seek to provide clarity about the processes put in place to organise teams for our Festivals – be they internal CJCA Festivals or Festivals involving other Districts from around the South Island.
These have been in place since Janaury 2021 and will be updated each year with an outline of the plan for each year group culminating in Festivals to be held in Janaury of each year that all those wishing to participate in can.
The NZC Helmet Policy is designed to keep our players safe – the use of helmets by Keepers is important as with the majority of CJCA cricket played on artificial pitches the risk from balls hitting the lip of then pitch and raring up is higher for the wicket keeper than other players due to the number of balls returned to the Keeper. Unless bowlers are very quick Keepers will barely be 5m back from the stumps and thus the CJCA endorse a cautious approach & recommends keepers always wear Helmets.
A Game for All – Creating a safe and fun environment for cricket
Safeguarding in cricket is based upon the concept of providing an enjoyable cricket environment tailored to the needs and requirements of Children and Vulnerable Adults.
A policy decision has been taken at New Zealand Cricket (NZC) to work to the highest standard of guidance and, as such, NZC has adopted a Welfare of Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy (Policy). The Policy sets out NZC’s commitment to providing a safe, positive and fun environment for Children and Vulnerable Adults who play cricket.
